Birdman Just Won the Oscar for Best Picture, but The Grand Budapest Hotel Wasn’t Too Behind

Alright people, the fantastic Oscars 2015 are over and yes, I can’t help but to begin with stating that everyone looked amazing. It was the perfect blend of beauty and class on the red carpet. The paparazzi must have had lost focus more than just a couple of times #justsaying. Anyways, this ain’t about who looked hotter, prettier, or sexier, because you can check it all out on the show or social media can also help you in that case. Do check it out, as it was worth getting those dresses and suits people. Did I just again have lost in Oscars 2015?

Well the race of the Best Picture won by Birdman, but The Grand Budapest Hotel wasn’t left too behind, as the awards tally remained the same. Both of these fantabulous movies got two Oscars each, though the Birdman’s Oscars were too heavy. In the online critics scores, both of these movies run head to head as if we compare the IMDb ratings for these films, then the number is 8.1 for both films. In the Metacritic score, both of these movies also ties with 88%. But the Rotten Tomatoes seem to have something more sophisticated in their ratings, as the Birdman has 93% score and The Grand Budapest Hotel has 92%. I ain’t here to tell you guys that Rotten Tomatoes have slightly better and more accurate critics’ ratings than the other two, but I’m just saying that both of the movies were phenomenal. The best picture had to be one, so Wes Anderson, please don’t get too upset for it. Millions loved your movie too.
